    Here goes :). The first three patches are unrelated fixes. Patch 4 implements
    "make localmodconfig MODULES_LIST=lsmod.out".

    1. kconfig: streamline_config.pl: "use strict" (and fix the errors)
    2. kconfig: streamline_config.pl: fix out-of-tree builds
    3. kconfig: streamline_config.pl: add handling for "if" statements in Kconfig
    4. kconfig: streamline_config.pl: optionally accept lsmod output

    Regards
    Alan
